Dolly Parton could write an oven manual and release an accompanying nose harp album and I’d be thrilled. So maybe I’m a little biased when I say that I thought this book was the bomb diggity. I’d had it on pre-order since the queen announced it months ago because, as you may have deduced, superfan here, and I’m psyched to say that I wasn’t disappointed. Honkytonks, alley fights, fierce feminism, and a tractor-trailer hijacking all in one neat package! So, whether you’re into Dolly Parton, James Patterson, or don’t give a rattlesnake’s tushy about either one and just want a fun read, pick up Run, Rose, Run and get ready for a rootin’ tootin’ good time.
I am a crime junkie through and through and nothing captures my attention quite like a good cult. Oh, I’m not supped to call it that. Erm, nothing captures my attention quite like a good sex trafficking pyramid scheme/harem disguised as a self-help organization. From NXIVM’s beginnings as an MLM in the 1990s, to the demise of its leader in 2019, Berman expertly lays out every odd detail of what's been dubbed a “sex cult.” Warning: there’s rape, branding, and…volleyball? Also, the Dalai Lama.
1920s New York City: a time of bootlegging, modern technology, and dark magic. The Eastside is thriving--diving ahead into the enlightened age and providing comfort for all who can afford to live there. But on the other side of the fence, the Westside, people are disappearing, shadows lurk in the dark, and tiny mysteries are turning into bigger, life-threatening mysteries. Westside is perfect for fans of fantasy, horror, A+ heroines, and up-all-night puzzles.
